Luftwaffe F-104G JG 71 “Richthofen” 1965 Hobby Master HA1043 Scale 1:72 Hobby Master highly detailed die-cast model 1:72 Scale Hobby Master Item number: HA1043 The F-104 Starfighter was a revolutionary design with short razor-sharp wings. It was the first aircraft to be able to maintain Mach 2 not just in short bursts. The Starfighter shattered speed and rate of climb records that still are impressive today. This extremely high speed earned the plane the nickname “The Missile With A Man In It”. Because of financial considerations 15 or more countries purchased the F-104. The Starfighter flew with the USAF in 1958 and the last airplane was decommissioned in Italy in 2004. Built by Fokker, F-104G c/n 683D-8044 made its first flight on April 16, 1963 as KG+144. On July 8, 1963 joined JG 71 at Wittmund AB as JA+240 wearing a silver paint finish. On August 15, 1967 during a landing in marginal weather JA+240 went off the runway breaking all landing gear and flipped over and the pilot was unhurt. The aircraft only had 438 flight hours but the damage was too costly to repair so it became an instructional air frame.. The Hobby Master "1:72 Air Power Series" range presents detailed, ready-made diecast models of military aircraft. Hobby Master "1:72 Air Power Series" diecast airplanes feature: Diecast metal construction with some plastic components. Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details. Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals. Opening canopies, revealing detailed cockpit interiors. Interchangeable extended/retracted landing gear.
